One piece of potential very good news, however, the first major norte usually heralds the end of hurricane season for our area of the carribbean. However, I cannot remember a full-fledged norte arriving so early. Earliest I remember was the first week in November.
Let's see if that rule applies in this instance. Because October is historically the most dangerous month for hurricanes to git us. And here comes this massive norte. Cross fingers! Plus, nothing coming off the coast of Africa right now or brewing in the Bay of Honduras, where many of our bad boys and girls come from late in the season.
The weather is changing!

You're killing me. I thought the first real norte seriously knocked down the dengue threat? What's next? You going to tell me WW no longer has frozen margaritas or El Moro stopped making Mole?
We bumped back the missus' Oct trip, but I was hoping November was going to be A-OK now.... Next you'll tell me the Esquites guy moved away....
Wishing I was retiring to Cozumel.....

They don't like the 'chilly' temps of November through even April. And they can't breed when everything dries up. As it tends to do in the winter and early spring here not counting the nortes of which we had at least 27 last season I believe.
Maybe the heavy rains will kill the carriers. The problem is if there is still active dengue virus in the bodies of animals or people and they get bit by a female carrier at the end of the next breeding cycle, the whole thing could theoretically start up again.
Let's see what happens after this norte. If the weather turns cooler and stays cooler as it does after the usual first norte of November or December, then prolly low mosquitos and no sizeable tormentos coming our way.
I'm off the island at the mo' so hope to hear weather reports that things are staying cooled off and not returning to the typical steamy October I have come to loath.
